Australia's young music lovers can see their favourite bands at this new festival

You can miss out on a lot when you’re not 18. You can’t drive alone, you can’t vote and you can’t get in to many of the best gigs in town. FBi Radio decided to do something about this and so they put together Young Blood, a one-day music festival that’s exclusively for music lovers aged 18 and under.

Oxford Art Factory will host the inaugural event, with bands taking to the stage from noon. First on deck is Newcastle-native Fritz, kicking things off with a loud, lo-fi bang. Punters will also hear the bright garage pop of Flowerstruck, who will release their debut album just two days before the festival, with sets from noise/folk quartet Tiny Little Houses and a DJ set from DZ Deathrays following.

Young Blood’s first ever line-up will be headlined by Ali Barter, who’ll be selecting tracks from her debut album A Suitable Girl.
